Well, it looks like the last "D" series post was published on November 24. Damn. My apologies for being so late, but give a brother a break, right?
I'm leaving for Paris in a matter of hours, so lets keep this brief and scattered.
How about we begin with a Grace-Jones-before-she-was-really-Grace-Jones jam: "Send In the Clowns." Yes, this one isn't original -- the lyrics (and arrangements, I suppose) were done by Sondheim way back in 1973 for the musical A Little Night Music. Makes sense for Jones, anyway.
Now on to the heavy one: "Bust That Nut (Downtown Mix)" by Poopee & the NY Squirrels. Poopee and her (his?) gang literally busted only one nut (aka 12") while in existence, but it yielded a euphoria unlike any other. Don't let me bust it alone, alright?
And ... last, but not least, a "message song": Cristina's "Blame It On Disco." The tune is an ode to the woes of living, loving, or even just liking someone who enjoys boogieing every once in a while. The song isn't really all that disco-y ... but that's the point! It has a repressed disco vibe. So, yeah, Cristina might be telling her B.F. to stop with the late nights out, but she's also telling him that she can't resist that beat, either.
Wish me luck! See you soon!
